Plastic Decking vs. Composite Decking

FREE Decking Samples

Some people will tell you that plastic decking and composite decking are the same thing, but there are a number of key differences between these two materials. For one thing, plastic deck boards are entirely synthetic, whereas composite products are made by combining polymers with real wood flour, making them a kind of ‘semi-synthetic’ option.

But which material is better? Both composite and plastic decking have the enormous benefit of requiring very little maintenance, but we at TimberTech UK believe that composite wood products are superior to synthetic decking boards in practically every other way. Read on to find out why, or click here to order a free sample of our own composite wood decking.

What Makes Our Decking Better Than Plastic?

Plastic decking

Environmentally Friendly

Plastic decking is not a particularly green choice, whereas TimberTech’s composite decking is designed to have the smallest possible impact on the world around us. Our products are created using waste wood materials from the furniture industry - materials that would otherwise be placed into landfill sites.
Synthetic decking

Better Quality

All TimberTech decking products come with a 25/30-year residential warranty, so you can rest assured that our decking is made to last! Synthetic decking boards are hollow and can bow and crack underfoot, whereas TimberTech decking has a solid construction that ensures strength, stability, and a decades-long lifespan.
Plastic deck boards

Low Maintenance

If you’re thinking of buying plastic deck boards, it’s probably because you heard about their minimal maintenance requirements. But TimberTech decking also requires practically zero maintenance – it may look like wood, but you’ll never have to spend time sanding or painting it. All it needs is the occasional jet wash.

But Isn’t Plastic Decking Cheaper Than Composite?

It’s true that plastic deck boards are marginally cheaper than composite wood, but bear in mind that you get what you pay for. Synthetic decking often has a cheap look, and the boards are prone to flexing and splitting. The chances are high that you’ll have to replace your deck before long, and so plastic decking is often – in the long term – a far less cost-effective choice.

Although a little more expensive than plastic, TimberTech’s composite wood products are still an affordable option, and if you spend a few extra pounds in the first instance, you’ll get a quality product that lasts a long time and looks much nicer than other synthetic decking products. Invest in your outdoor living space for the long term!

Stand out from the crowd with composite wood!

Plastic decking usually comes in just one colour: white. But TimberTech’s decking range allows you to tailor your deck to your tastes, with many different styles and colours available (including Grey, Oak and Teak) We also have a range of composite handrails in complementary colours, as well as integrated LED deck lights that will help you to complete the look. Why settle for synthetic decking boards when you could have something that looks just like wood?
